1. Ask yourself how often you plan on wearing it?
If you are looking for your first watch to be one you can wear all-day, every-day and at every occasion then it is important to get a watch that is versatile and simple. An everyday watch needs to be classic and elegant, free from too many details to ensure it will look good when paired with jeans and a t-shirt but also smart office attire. For many our Solitude Black Silver will be the perfect all-rounder with it's leather strap it can be worn at any occasion with it’s timeless style.
Alternatively if you are searching for a first watch to be worn with work-wear or at special occasions, then we suggest trying something with a little more detail to grab the attention of others. The Caesar is stylish and intricate with its mechanical detail and gold face designed to complement the modern gentleman’s smart attire.
2. Do you want a fashion or timeless watch?
It is vital to think about whether you want your first watch to be a fashion or timeless watch. If you are keen to stay right on top of the trends with your new watch then a rose-gold timepiece like our Classic Rose Gold is a graceful, contemporary and fashion friendly choice. As the fashion conscious will know, Rose Gold watches are the must-have colour for 2017.
Alternatively, if you desire a watch that is a little more timeless for you to continue wearing ten years down the line, then it is advisable that you stick to a simple silver strap and face as opposed to a fashionable colour like rose gold. Silver promises to never go out of style. A watch like our Classic Silver will ensure that your first watch will be a luxurious classic that you can wear for years to come.
Choosing your first watch is hard but we hope that by asking yourself these questions it will become a little easier. Remember, when it comes to buying a watch be confident, go with your heart as your watch contains a little piece of you.
